I grew up in a large family in Clearlake California. We spent our days riding horses, water skiing, and enjoying the country life. My family fancied themselves gold miners, thus we spent many summer months at the family gold mine on the South Fork of the American River.....If you ever want to know a little something about panning or mining for gold, I'm your gal! I left Lake County to attend college in Idaho. College was an amazing time filled with wonderful memories and friends...to much to include in my bio, but if we ever get the chance to sit and chat, I would love to share. After College I moved to the Fair Oaks/Sacramento area. On a visit back home in Lake County I reunited with an Ol' friend from Junior High School who turned out to be the LOVE OF MY LIFE! Together we have 6 incredible children! He is currently the Mayor of Clearlake, so we split our time between Sacramento County, Lake County, and our vacation home in Mendocino County. We are truly blessed...and I get to sale real estate in all of those counties!
I attended Lower Lake High School in Lower Lake California. I was evolved in just about everything. Pep Club President, Rally Commissioner, Student Council, Drama Club, Choir, Yearbook Staff, Jr. Miss. Lake County Pageant....the list goes on. I made life long friends while attending Lower Lake High School, for which I am proud to say I am still in contact with many of them. After graduating High School, I attended Brigham Young University. I currently have a BA in Political Science, an AA in Early Childhood Education, and an AA in Legal Assisting.
I grew up with four older (and very protective) brothers, and one younger sister. Our parents were very hard working, loyal, and honest people. All of their children inherited these qualities. I am very proud of both of my parents and each one of my siblings. Integrity is a common denominator that binds us as a family.
Family is very important to me. My hard work and dedication to my Real Estate career is merely a result of being raises by proud, loyal, and honest parents, AND a desire to instill those same qualities in my own children. Children learn best by example, and I strive each day to make my children as proud of me as I am of my own parents.
Several years ago my I owned two sandwich shops. A Subway Sandwich Shop in South Sacramento and a Blimpies Sandwich Shop in Folsom. My husband was busy as a Sheriff in Lake County (now retired), so the management of our businesses was my responsibility. Both businesses thrived and provided well for our family. Prior to obtaining my Real Estate License I enjoyed working as a Para Legal for a family law firm. Although I enjoyed my time in other fields of employment, I truly feel I have found my calling in Real Estate! I love it! My only regret is...I didn't start 20 years ago.
When I am not busy showing properties, listing homes, and negotiating amazing deals for my clients, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. Some of the activities we find ourselves often evolved in are, hiking, bike riding, kayaking, and just about any kind of water sport. I am also an avid baker, and find myself in the kitchen late at night whipping something up several times a week. Because of my addiction to homemade baked goods, I am dedicated to working out daily (with much less enthusiasm then baking), and I enjoy teaching Zumba at my local fitness club.
